The corpse plant flower at the Dunedin Botanic Garden has opened.
Famous for producing one of the world’s largest flowers and a disgusting smell, comparable to rotting flesh, the flower is expected to draw large crowds.
Dunedin City Council says people can visit the plant at the winter garden glasshouse, which will be open for extended hours.
The plant was gifted to the garden 10 years ago and this is the first time it has flowered.
The flower only opens for around 24 to 36 hours.
The first time a corpse flower opened in New Zealand was at the Auckland Domain Wintergarden in 2013 and thousands of people flocked to see and smell the rare plant.
